PHS Regulations

In compliance with the 2012 U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) Financial Conflict of Interest regulations, each individual participating in PHS-funded research is required to participate in mandatory training on the new regulations and to submit Significant Financial Disclosure (SFI) forms to the Conflict of Interest Office. Where investigators have disclosed that they have no SFI related to their institutional responsibilities, the University’s Policy and Procedures on Financial Conflict of Interest to Promote Objectivity in Public Health Service-Funded Research requires Investigators to certify that no SFI exists.
